A few weeks back, I was invited by Jen Bishop, editor of Dynamic Business magazine to attend a speed networking event in Sydney, Australia, hosted by Regus Virtual Offices. The format was to spend 60 seconds with each person you were due to meet - 30 seconds introducing yourself and 30 seconds of them introducing themselves. Due to the format and time, I ended up meeting 52 people from various business backgrounds.

By all accounts, it was a great success.

When I got back to the office, I contacted suppliers that I had an urgent need for their services and promptly followed up the business leads during the week. I was still left with a large pile of business cards on my desk. So what to do with these? I added them to my business database and invited them to Linkedin (or asked them to invite me) which is my usual practice. But then I thought ...

I'm a connector - I connect people to other people. So why shouldn't I share these new contacts with others who may be in need of their services. Hence, this post. I've categorised each business based on what I think they do, the person I met, their business name and their website.

Consider yourselves "speed connected".
